    By the south's temps, ours is very mild, but today is almost 100, and humidity to match. Just went to check to make sure all my ladies are alive. My 15 week old WL just went poo, and the first time was watery, and shot out, but a funny green/yellow, the second time was just clear liquid,and shot out also.

    Is she sick? heat related? I have save a chick electrolytes and vitamins. Should I try this?

    I have given ice water to them as soon as I got home from work. She is acting okay, just panting as the others are.

    She is the sweetest of the 2. Don't want to lose her to the heat!

    Any help?? Thanks

    If this is only happening when it's hot, what's probably going on is that she's drinking a LOT of water to compensate for the heat, so she'll poop watery poo. It's normal, if there's no other symptoms and she's drinking a lot. [​IMG]
